Without forgiveness there can be no progress.
Because we are bound to make mistakes.
And when we make mistakes we must ask for forgiveness.
And as we have been forgiven so we must forgive.
"'And forgive us our debts, as we have forgiven our debtors.'" Matthew 6:12 (NRSV)
Unless there is forgiveness no one would ever be saved.
For we have all made mistakes.
And we must humble ourselves.
And ask forgiveness.
From those whom we have wronged.
And from God.
